Angelo Henriquez will be a crowd favourite says Roberto MartinezAfter making his debut from the bench for Wigan yesterday, Roberto Martinez is backing Chilean striker Angelo Henriquez to become a crowd favourite at the DW Stadium.

Henriquez came on at half time as Wigan drew with Bournemouth and almost announced his arrival with a goal, but saw his header hit the bar.

Rated highly by Wigan boss Martinez, the 18 year old could shine in the absence of Ivorian striker Aruna Kone who heads to the African Cup of Nations this month:

¬†“There is such a freshness about his play.

“Angelo’s movement was outstanding and his knack of getting a couple of yards in the box gave him a very good chance, which nearly brought him his first Wigan goal.

“I have a feeling he is going to be a real crowd favourite.”

“Angelo tries to be very clever. Because he is not the most physical, he avoids 50-50 contact with defenders but his running into space is really sharp and incisive.

“We do need to get to know him a little bit better. Sometimes he made some great moves and we couldn’t see him.

“But he will give us a completely different dimension.

“His attitude is incredible. He is a young man with great standards who is desperate to be successful in the Premier League.”
